Ptsd The Demon


I went through some old boxes, and I found some items that has placed me in frame of mind I have never been.

It Madness, fear, shame, and more reality the harm my behavior has caused. Remember a month, I didn't know PTSD existed

I thought my way of thinking and doing was ok

Let me share, so I can Purge

1996- Ft wingate, New Mexico, Shannon 17 years old student writes a note to me: I deeply concerned about your behavior, you have not been yourself, the students are concerned your not spending anytime with us. I tried to talk to you, we feel your not telling us something. Kimberly, Fidelia, Sherylynn, Gilbert, Paulson feel the same. But the way your acting is concerning us. Don't get mad, we want you to know we Care.

This job, I walk out on in the middle of school year.

The behavior was cause by a relationship that went sour. Here is what Kathy said in a letter I found and forgot about: Darryle today I got a restraining order placed on you because your frightening me, your drunkeness, Saturday night, the weapon thing, your being placed on leave because of your breakdown ( no truth to that, I don't think) the calls, the threats, going to my work place, and you stalking me, I will not live in a life of fear.

I am becoming very ashamed, because I had incidents one after another through the years

Most kids will not do that you are a lucky man. I would use the note to get the benefits that were earned.

Hang tough SGM. The counseling will help. It will be hard, but open up and talk about the memories and yes the demons. They'll help you.

Its a damn shame that a 17 year student, could see their was problem and had the courage to tell me about it. Where were the adults, that could of said something, and just maybe my path of behavior could of been curtailed earlier in my life.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
